Iván trained initially as a statistician in the Universidad de Granada in Spain and after a 4-year period working in the private sector as software engineer, he took up a PhD scholarship with David H Foster in the Department of Optometry & Neuroscience at the University of Manchester on information theory and statistics of color images of natural scenes. He received his PhD in 2009 and has since worked in vision science in either optometry or ophthalmology departments. During his more than 15 years in vision research, he has published over 35 theoretical and experimental papers on a wide variety of topics in vision research, including retinal anomalies such as glaucoma, accommodation, myopia, optical aberrations, and adaptive optics, most of them in top-quartile vision, ophthalmology, and optometry journals.


Iván has given lectures on statistics, optics, bioethics, and effective writing and presentation of scientific content to Master's and PhD students. He has also collaboratively developed open-source software for a wide variety of applications, some of which can be found here.
